• Exaptive

    Tools to bring together people, data and analyses to support collaborative communities and boundary crossing interactions. Longer Description The Exaptive Platform is a set of tools for facilitating cross-disciplinary innovation. The Exaptive Studio is a modular programming environment that makes it easier for the tools and techniques from one discipline to be applied in other fields and creatively appropriated for other use-cases. The Exaptive Cognitive City leverages metadata from the Studio, as well incorporating metadata from other external sources, to dynamically build networks based on the work people do and to recommend collaboration and teams optimized for ideation and innovation. Related to Doug’s Vision Doug dedicated his career to the vision that humans and computers working together…

  • Liquid Space

    A live, deeply interactive and connective web based thinking environment. The Liquid Space Project is based on the insight that if you change the view of your information you change our perspective and gain insights. The benefit of using non-linear, freeform environments to lay out thoughts or concepts has a long history in augmented thought, from the basic post-it notes on the wall and the Japanese KJ-Ho Method, to the elaborate ‘murder wall’s on TV shows where the protagonist is trying to get their head around wildly disparate aspects of a situation. The rationale is that this method employs the users occipital lobe to augment their prefrontal cortex. Digital systems…

  • KnowFlow

    KnowFlow in a visual knowledge management enviroment for collaborative groups. Collaborative SAAS, purely web-based multi-user application. Although it is been created as a part of Neuroweb platform, it seems, that roots behind Douglas Engelbart conceptual framework and Neuroweb conceptual framework are the same. As one can see when reading D.Engelbart’s  group documents, cognitive science concepts were used in a context very similar to what is considered to be a conceptual framework of Cultural–historical psychology approach, based on undestanding of concept developement and role of symbolic representations in development of psyche and culture. One can see citations of authors connected to cultural-historical psychology throughout the works of Engelbart’s group, i.e. of…

  • Webleaux / Dynamic View / Murder Wall (name to be decided – it became Liquid Space)

    In chats with Christopher today we went through what the dynamic view he is working on should really be for and how it should look and behave. We agreed that it should be a way for someone to analyse a series of web pages, by default the blog you are on but with support for any web pages to be pasted in (augmented/hypercopy/citation link copy). Initial work will show blog posts (or pre-prepared for demo) which can be arranged at will and comments being possible to add on the fly. The resulting graphical view will be saveable as a blog post (future). Presented By Christopher Gutteridge

  • HyperKnowledge

    Hyperknowledge allows to build a federated ecosystem of knowledge work tools. It is based on an event sourcing model of generalized concept graphs, which can model structured data or documents. High-level events are interpreted into micro-events by distributed components, allowing for ad-hoc event model extensibility; components can enrich data reactively; inter-process subscription allows reactive transclusion. Longer Description We will present work in progress on the hyperknowledge protocol. We are developing infrastructure for a federated document and concept graph model, HyperKnowledge. We want to establish a Web of Knowledge. This allows to see how any idea is connected with other ideas in debates, through evidence, citations, influence, consequences, etc. The long-term goal is…
